Fishing Report and Map 2016 Owens River
Owens River both above the lake and below the dam holds s some pretty nice fish in there, holding both browns and rainbows.
Below Crowley Lake is open year-round, but above the lake is open only during the general trout season. CATCH-AND-RELEASE ONLY on public lands with barbless artificial flies and lures only.
Up River from the town of of Bishop is wild trout waters . Both native and stocked trout from around 12 inches up to 20 inches.
As seen in our Fishing Map, the Upper Owens is above Crowley Lake and snakes around the valley with many detours and alternative channels.
You can ﬁsh the upper stretch from its entry into lake up to where it enters private property. Lots of anglers go from the Benton Crossing Bridge, where usually it is stocked but still there are some sizable 3- to 5-pound brown trout. Some brown trout ﬁshing right below the Crowley dam, but because of the pipeline, the gorge area between Crowley Lake and Pleasant Valley Reservoir is not accessible.
Our fishing map shows that from the Pleasant Valley dam to the Five Bridges, the Owens River is designated as a wild trout ﬁshery and trout here are mostly I2 to 16 inches , the trout naturally holding their own population .
Our fishing report indicates Panther Martin lures, Rooster Tails work well but stay barbless, please., and Fly ﬁshing is also popular here with March Brown and Captains as two of the preferred patterns. The river gets brush heavy near Bishop, but there is good spots to fish.
